Critic Reviews for The Detour Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Like any good road trip, a glint of insanity in the driver's eye makes things all the more interesting. We may not be overly concerned with where they end up, but whatever Jones and Bee want to throw at this resilient group is fine by us.

The Detour is the kind of show that is best consumed in extended viewing. Individually, its episodes can seem slapdash and gratuitously crass. But there's a theme beneath the ribaldry.

Feb 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The Detour hits many of the traditional family sitcom beats, but [Jason] Jones and [Samantha] Bee provide a subversive new shine to old familiar tropes.

Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Unapologetically raunchy and delightfully weird, 'The Detour' broadcasts a fun-house version of domestic bliss.

Mar 9, 2017 | Full Review…

That kind of dissonance between classic family hijinks and twisted debauchery is exactly what makes The Detour such a fantastic ride. And if there are bumps along the way ... well, that's all part of the journey.

Feb 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The Detour's edge is dulled slightly in a second season that's too dependent on the show's trademark shameless and shocking humor, but make no mistake - this is high-quality, brilliant lunacy that works far more often than not.

Audience Reviews for The Detour: Season 2

  • Jul 28, 2019
    I loved season 1. Is season 2 even the same show?! Any redeeming qualities the parents had are blown out of the water. I don't even care what happens to them.
  • Apr 26, 2017
    Admittedly a few laughable moments but overall pretentious. On many occasions tries to go for that over the top laugh but fails and ends up being just plain annoying.
  • Apr 10, 2017
    I was worried about where the story line would go from the end of season 1, but it does not dissapoint. Such good writing and the cast really pulls it off.

    LOVED THIS SHOW!!! Yes it's completely inappropriate and politically incorrect, but my husband and I laughed our butts off from the first stupid episode on. I got my 22yr old son and his college friends hooked. Now they're watching every week. So glad it got picked up for a second season!
